Portable power pack charges up to about eight times faster than your average device
Smartphones and battery life have a troubled relationship. That’s bound to get a little more strained, thanks to new airport regulations on bringing devices on board that must be capable of being turned on. Faced with having to give up your device to security, it is probably best to invest in something that can prevent that situation.
Using something called Ultra-X technology, the portable power pack charges up to about eight times faster than your average device, meaning you can plug it in for 15 minutes and have enough juice stored up to give your smartphone a decent charge.
It takes about an hour and a half to charge fully. It has a 10,000 mAh rechargeable battery, so you can stay on the right side of airport security.
